Forum: GratefulDead Subject: The Meat Puppets pay homage

Interesting article where they pay much respect to Garcia. As JOTS and I like to remind folks, the boys were very PUNK in many relevant ways:

http://www.jambase.com/Articles/18319/Meat-Puppets-Out-Of-The-Weeds

From the interview/article:

"Fuck the ghost, you're never gonna escape the guitar playing! It's Jerry for crissakes! God bless him. The Meat Puppets wouldn't have existed without the Grateful Dead. You want to know where the fucking attitude shift came from that we passed onto the punkers, well, it's largely from the Dead and the rich musical background they echoed back to," offers Kirkwood. "They're just a bunch of guys that really fucking dig music and really like playing it and aren't constrained by the times. It's a kind of art that's always been around in a way. They're steeped in romance and tradition in the way a lot of good art is, and so are we. But, fuckin' Jerry, that's just a one of a kind guy."

thanks for the link. I never understood why so many people diss the band. It's one thing to not like the music ( which I can't understand either but I'm not exactly objective when it comes to that ), but to have no respect for what they did for so long. It's great hearing a " cool" band sing praise.
